Yesterday I did some weeding in the vegetable garden and enjoyed mid-July in New Hampshire by picking and eating raspberries, blueberries, and juneberries I’ve got growing.
Today I’m off to Valdez, Alaska, where for two weeks I’ll be working as a consultant for a Discovery Channel tv show on survival. It’s been about five years since I’ve been back up there. I lived on the Kenai Peninsula for a while in the mid-90’s and loved it. It’s a long way from New Hampshire – it took me ten days to drive there from here – and I’ll be on planes for about ten hours. But the hassles of travel will be worth it when I see the Chugach range tonight. I’m not sure if I’ll have time to get a line in the water, but if I do you’ll definitely hear about it.
